Cut drafting time

SppDb dramatically cuts CAD drafting time because information such as text notes and the path to images of species can be copied and pasted into the model and layout spaces in CAD software such as gCADPlus, AutoCAD, DraftSight and MicroStation. The figure below shows an example of this. Species used in a design are shown alongside the landscape plan.

Copy images

Build plant knowledge

SppDb is a great tool for building plant knowledge. Photographing and entering data about a particular species into SppDb helps learn about new species, expanding and consolidating your knowledge.

Multiple tables

Hardspace data

In addition to storing information about species, the database can also be used to store images and details about ‘hardspace’ elements such as construction details, furniture, artwork, etc. Add images to a CAD landscape design helps give a client a grasp of what is intended.



Store snapshots of previous design work, load into your CAD software and clip parts of older design work and add to the current project.

Tip: If you take SppDb with you to site meetings, images can be used to explain design concepts to prospective clients Рa picture is worth a thousand words! 

CAD blocks

Manage blocks such as details that you have created.

Text notes 

Tired of re-typing text notes? Simply copy and paste into MTEXT entities.
